I'm gonna sit right here all day and night
That's what I said, reckon you heard me right
Don't care about fame or fortune in the eyes of men
Just take what the law allows and say "Amen"

I heard the Memphis train speak to the moon
Whipped out my fountain pen, wrote down the tune
Don't care if it's been sung, I don't know when
Such a good old tune I'll sing again

I'll sing again (I'll sing again)
I'll sing again (I'll sing again)
Of busted dreams and god-forsaken men
Of lonesome roads that never seem to end
And when I'm done, get up and sing again

Heard old lonesome coyote's midnight song
A-howling at the moonlight all night long
I grabbed my pen and wrote down on my sleeve
How hearts that love, they sometime got to grieve

I'll sing again (I'll sing again)
Yes, sing again (Yes, sing again)
Just as long and loudly as I can
Some say the coyote howls, some say the moon
But only broken hearts can sing that tune

I hear a guitar ring 'bout half past nine
Plays watermelon hanging on the vine
The baby wakes up crying down the hall
And the undertaker's beating on the wall

I'll sing again (I'll sing again)
Yes, sing again (Yes, sing again)
Like any evening train heard round the bend
I mean to speak if it don't offend
But if I happen to I'll sing again
I mean to speak if it don't offend
But if I happen to I'll sing again
